My 18-year old daughter narrowly escaped death the evening of may 1st while driving my 2004 GMC Yukon denali. She was in a relatively "routine" accident in which she lost control of the vehicle at approximately 40 mph and struck a tree head-on in a residential area of colorado springs. A good samaritan pulled her from the vehicle seconds before the vehicle erupted into a massive fireball that completely gutted the vehicle. Needless to say, I am enormously troubled by the fireball -- not something that should happen in this type of accident. I am reminded of similar problems with the Ford pinto and Ford explorer and worry that there is a design flaw in this vehicle that may cost others their lives. I purchased and meticulously maintained this vehicle because I wanted something big, heavy and safe to protect my family, never anticipating this horrific scenario. Would you be willing to investigate this incident? I have most of my maintenance records, the police report, photographs, news accounts, youtube vide, etc. Usaa is my insurer. The vehicle is a total loss but I have asked usaa to hold the vehicle so that you or another appropriate agency can conduct an investigation.

I was traveling on the freeway at about 70 mph coming from a supervision training class along with a CO-worker and the following sensor lights started appearing on my dashboard: traction control off, stabilitrak off. This has continued to happen on a regular basis. I have taken it to the gm service at least twice and private repair facilities numerous times and the situation continues. It is now 01-28-2014 and the situation continues and is getting worse. Alone with the above issues now the "reduce engine power" light comes on and the engine shuts down. It has become very dangerous to drive this vehicle and no repair facility, gm or otherwise, knows how to fix the problem. I have to drive so this vehicle is what I drive but, it is dangerous and gm needs to fix it or recall for this issue. I need answers quickly I fear this issue is dangerous for all concerned especially when this happens on a freeway!!.

When I purchased the vehicle in March, the gas gauge did not work. I am not sure when it stopped working. I would really like for this to be fixed, so that I do not run out of gas again. ( I was sitting on the side of the road with my 65 year old mother and my 16 month old granddaughter. ) please let me know if this can be fixed and if it is under any recalls.

Failure Date: 08/30/2010

Purchased a used 2008 GMC Yukon Jan. 23, 2010 and approximately 4 months later the first issue occurred with the car not starting in my driveway. I thought it was user error. A few months later coming out of the grocery store went to enter my vehicle and no start, went under the hood and moved the battery cable and it started. Later that night I tried to tighten the battery cable, but it wasn't loose. Approximately 1 month later while driving, the dash flickered and "stability traction" light illuminated with slight loss of power. Got to destination exited vehicle and upon return vehicle would not start until I once again moved battery cable around. The last incident which occurred on August 30, 2010 while driving approx. 15 mph through a residential neighborhood, engine just cut off. Wrestled car to side, put in park and restarted. This was the scariest incident because someone could have rear ended me. I took vehicle to shop GMC dealer and they found nothing wrong. 23,000 miles on vehicle now. Purchased with 17,500.

I also have had issues with the parking brake and abs. If more people complain maybe there will be action taken. I do have a fuel module recall that I hope is going to be corrected. There are some dealers that do not want to even correct your safety recall. I am having to travel an hour and a half to a dealer out of town because my local dealer does not want to deal with me.

Which requires us to apply the brakes in a manner for which I and my wife feel is excessive pressure being applied to the brakes. We have expressed our concerns to our local g m c dealership more than five times in a one year time frame. Their responce is we and our techs, can not duplacate the issue we have expressed! we both feel this is an unacetpable responce. I know that the system inolved is non mechcanicle system that opperates the gas peddle it opperates the the accelorator peddle by the use sensors and or sending units. Please advise. Im we are very concerned about oue familys saftey. Yours truly mario moreno p. S thank you for your consideration.

Low oil light flashes. Oil is low a quart to a quart and a half every thousand miles. The oil pressure light states there is no oil pressure and to shut off the engine. Recently brought it to the dealer and now the dealer states it may be an internal engine problem. No definitive diagnosis and it is very costly. This problem has been ongoing for years. . . .

The contact owns a 2004 GMC Yukon. Approximately six months ago, the fuel gauge began to display inaccurate fuel readings. Beginning in November of 2007, the speedometer began malfunctioning and remains at 120 mph, even when the vehicle is not on. The vehicle has been taken to the dealer on four separate occasions for the steering wheel to be greased because it makes a popping noise every six months. The vehicle has not been taken to the dealer concerning the fuel gauge or the speedometer at this time. There is an extended warranty on the fuel gauge and speedometer, which has been extended to 70,000 miles. The VIN, engine size, and purchase date were unknown. The current mileage was 123,000 and failure mileage was 118,000.

Vehicle gets extremely low gas, 13 mpg on average. Burns oil . Need to add 2-3 quarts of oil between oil changes. Engine cooling fan stays on for extended periods while driving. All of which the dealership says is normal for the truck. They removed the driveshaft because of clunking at 25k mi. Reaction carrier replaced and transmission reconditioned at 36,663 mi after car stopped in the middle of the street. Car had to be towed in. At 62k miles engine light on and idles rough. Replaced throttle body. At 67k won't engage in reverse and makes klunking sound from reverse to drive. Replaced reverse housing, reaction shell, etc. At 75k had a reaction carrier failure, lost power brakes and lost power to the car. Almost was rear ended. Had to stop in middle of parking lot during christmas rush. Waited 5 min and restarted. Engine light stayed on, but was able to get to dealership. Was told that throttle body needs to be cleaned every 15k miles under service maintence. This was the first time I heard this! not really sure why it had to be cleaned, though, just had the throttle body replaced 13k miles ago. It seems that there are major flaws in the design of the engine. Obviously, the dealership has been putting band aids on my problem because they don't know how to fix. I have been very lucky that my family and children have not been in a major accident due to the major flaws in the engine designs. Every time I get my car fixed, the tech assures me that they have fixed the problem. I am really afraid to drive this car with so many close calls. The car is a hazard to drive!.

My GMC Yukon xl has braking and fuel system problems, I have had 1 accident because of the Yukons brakes deactivating while hitting a small bump on the street while trying to avoid the accident. I have contacted GMC and all they said is they would offer me a 1,000 rebate on the next purchase of another vehicle, although they advertised this defective product on ("cnn") along with the other defects. There has been other hidden recalls on this vehicle and the manufacturer did not properly tell or notify me.

Driving 60 mph on a 20 mile bridge, the engine failed (engine light and traction control light were on. No power steering or power brakes. Nothing appeared to be overheated. 2 hrs later it started, 5 minutes later it killed again. Towed to nearest dealership. They road tested it and car failed again. Found 1 broken wire inside wire insulation. Repaired. Picked up car and it failed 1 mile later, took it back to dealership on "reduced engine power". They found 2 more broken wires. Replaced harness. One week later it happened again. After brief wait it started and ran for another day until I could get it to the dealership purchased from. They could not find anything wrong. Two weeks later it failed again. Tow truck took it to another dearlership. They changed another part relative to the fuel system and said it "may" be fixed. I refuse to pick it up or drive it again; it's dangerous and undependable. Have asked gm for another car and I am waiting for their response.
